I is for Inspiration

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is an Inspirational fun fold pop up card. This fun fold card is much easier to make than it looks.

Stampin Up Believe You Can fun fold pop up card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this inspirational quote by Teddy Roosevelt from the Believe You Can Stamp Set.  This reminds me of the book, The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.  I read this story to my Pre-K students the first day of school and it is so cute to hear them say “I think I can” when they try something new.

I used the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper as my base.  It is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, and 10. I chose coordinating colors from the DSP for the layered sentiment panel.  I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White using Memento Ink. I added a little color with my Stampin’ Markers and Blends. Here’s the measurements for the layered pieces:

  • 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White
  • 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 Mint Macaron
  • 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 Garden Green

I added a piece of Mint Macaron textile ribbon around the base and tied a bow. For a finishing touch I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  This card folds flat and fits in a medium size envelope to mail.

Stampin Up Believe You Can Stamp Set and Garden Lane Designer Series Paper fun fold pop up card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

What a fun surprise when the recipient opens the card! Just press down on the fold at the top and this inspirational sentiment pops up.  Perfect reminder to display on a desk or bookshelf. Why not try something new today and make this fun fold?! Click HERE for a photo tutorial. You can do it!

Sale A Bration

This is the last month of Sale-A-Bration. Some items from the Occasions catalog and Annual catalog will be retiring soon.  Do you have everything you want?  While we don’t know exactly what is retiring yet, we do know that the 2016-2018 In Colors will retire the end of May.  They will be available while supplies last before then so I suggest if these are colors you like, make sure you have what you need!  In the past they have sold out fast once they announce the retiring products in April!  *If you have the ink pads you may want to make sure you have the ink refills. Purchase now while you can earn FREE gifts with your qualifying purchase.  I always stock up on adhesives and other essentials like envelopes and cardstock during Sale-A-Bration.

Do you like making cards and 3D projects but don’t have everything you need?  Do you find you have limited time to craft and wish there was a way to make it quick & simple? Well, if you answered yes to either of these questions, I have just what you’re looking for…my “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet” TO GO!

Monthly “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $10 (plus shipping and handling)

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. Orders need to be placed by March 16th. (*Please note I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before March 16th.)

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed

I love to spoil my customers and they have been enjoying my card kits and 3D projects at classes and/or when they place an online order. I love to send out card kits and/or treats for orders placed with me. You can get a “thank you” card kit for FREE with an online purchase using the hostess code. (*See below for the current hostess code.)

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere. My kits are versatile to be able to use for different occasions!

Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

Please count me in! Besides being great cards, it’s the BEST value out there and I’d do this even if you charged more–your time is worth more than you are charging!
Thanks, Jeanie. Excited to see the new things you’ve come up with.
Susan
